There's this live track out there that's acoustic and slowed way down. It might just be Ed. Anyone know what that's from?

This one? Bridge School, 21 October 2011 1996



That's the one I've got. Thanks.

I was at that Bridge School and the new versions of Corduroy and Porch were just ridiculously awesome to hear and see performed. Oh what a memory. I wish they would do more acoustic sets. Jeff on an acoustic bass is bliss.

FWIW, the soundboard version posted right above this comment is from the other day that weekend, and I am certain that the performance I saw was better. Mine was 10/20/96. Small but noticeable differences.

Is that the same performance or is that a 2011 performance?

I just want to say this song is amazing, and IMO it may even be their best song.

It's a song that took me a while to grasp because it is very very different.

For all that people say "Binaural/Riot Act are so UNIQUE. In My tree is so UNIQUE" I don't think it matters if something is unique just for the sake of being unique. That isn't a praise in itself. but Corduroy is VERY unique, I don't really know another song by anybody that is like it, but to me this one just WORKS.

The message of the song is something that you can feel through Eddie's delivery even when some individual lines might not make sense because he has this passion in his voice, and the music....man...when that middle section comes in, and those chords are just going, and the drums are booming, it is one of the most transcendent moments in their catalog it is SOARING.

And honestly this song is MADE by the drums, this song is held together and brought to new heights thanks to Dave A, this may be one of the most important drum songs in the catalog, the way the drums drive everything forward, meshes with the guitars and holds everything together...the guitar parts are strange in the verses, as I said, I dont know a song that has verses with instrumentation like this one, but the drums center it and make it work.

The banging drums on that middle bridge and the rolls....man....it is so powerful.

Its weird because it has qualities of some later PJ songs that I do not like but for whatever reason I do love this one.

Also some amazing lines in here..."everything has chains, absolutely nothing's changed, take my hand, not my picture" "Ill end up alone like I began" "can't buy what I want because its free".

This song is a monster and definitely the best song on Vitalogy...that whole album had a unique sound that comes through in Immortality, Last Exit, Not for You, and this one - and in this one it is perfected.

I wish I weren't so tired of this song, because it really is one of the band's best.

I liked the cover of this song when Fallon had his "Pearl Jam week". I forgot which band it was, but it was a really cool take on the song.

This isn't even close to the best song on Vitalogy, let alone their catalog.

Its certainly up there. Corduroy, Better Man, and Immortality stand out the most on Vitalogy IMO. those are probably my top 3 but I also really like Last Exit and Not For You

That was Robin Pecknold from Fleet Foxes with some other dudes.
